About Neubauer's Auto Repair Ellicott City, MD

Established in 1947

Jim Neubauer started with his grandfather; Pete Reichardt, who started Reichardt’s Esso in 1947, on the corner of Route 40 and Frederick Road in Howard County, MD. “I remember when I was young (still in diapers), I would crawl through the rows of tires that were for sale. Later In my younger years back in the 1960s, when customers would come in for gas, I would have to stand on oil cans to reach customer’s windshields to clean them. Back then, my payment was a dime for the Pepsi machine.”

In the 1970s, Pete retired and sold the Esso station to Will Neubauer (my father) which then became Neubauer’s Exxon. I was in charge of cleaning restrooms and progressed from there. After finishing school, I started turning wrenches for my father full-time. In 1989, I retired my father and took over Neubauer’s Exxon.

In 2002, I left the gasoline business and bought the building on Chevrolet Drive in Ellicott City, which currently houses Neubauer’s Auto Repair. Today I have both of my kids working along with myself in the business. Chelsea (my daughter) works in the front with the customers and Seth (my son) works on servicing customers’ vehicles. Those two now make the fourth generation here at Neubauer’s.

Jim has built the Ellicott City, Maryland auto repair business into the busy, well-respected shop it is today. He is proud of the reputation that’s been built. Neubauer’s Auto Repair strives to be the best auto repair service in the area.

  • Four Wheel Alignment: Road test vehicle for proper and improper road handling characteristics. Test for vehicle pull. (Vehicle pulling to either side can be one of two problems. The alignment out of specs can attribute to the pull as well as a tire itself causing the pull) Set up vehicle on alignment machine, Measure and set air pressure in tires to proper inflation. Take alignment readings. Inspect steering for any mechanical damage before making any adjustments. Evaluate readings and make all necessary adjustments. (Certain vehicles may require special adjustments above the normal toe and thrust angle adjustments which will incur extra time and associated costs) Road test vehicle for improved road handling. Note: Certain vehicles today have fixed alignment positions that are not adjustable. Some vehicles have no camber or caster adjustments. Pot holes can wreak havoc on certain steering and suspension systems. We make every attempt to bring your vehicle within specs. If the caster adjustments are out of specs and their is no adjustment then a pull to one side will be likely. The only way to repair is replacement of fixed suspension parts and possibly body shop repairs.

Service Date

Services Performed
  • Brake Rotor Service: Remove any necessary vehicle components to gain access to the brake rotor. Remove existing Brake Rotor and inspect rotor for signs of blueing (An indicator of overheating) Inspect for pitting and measure brake rotor thickness and lateral run-out. Verify minimum thickness specs and attach rotor to machining equipment. Perform machine work to true rotor. Re-inspect and verify proper thickness and reinstall on vehicle. Torque brake rotor to proper specs. Road test as necessary for proper brake operation. Remachine Rear Rotors Note: Some Brake Rotor machining operations will require the brake pads to re-seat and mate with the Brake Rotor surface. This may cause the brakes not to perform properly. The vehicle will not stop as quick as necessary and may cause a gliding feeling when attempting to stop. Please allow extra distance for stopping and try not to get into any panic stops as your brakes may not function properly until the brake pads and rotors re-seat. This may take a day or two. If the brake function does not return to normal operation in a day or two, call and schedule in for a road test and evaluation.

Services Performed
  • Change Engine OIL and Filter. Lube Chassis where necessary. Inspect tires and adjust tire pressure as necessary. Inspect and top off all fluids. Minor inspection of car for needed services and maintenance.
  • Remove tires from vehicle. Set up on Computer Tire Balancer. Perform balance test. Remove all existing weights and re-test balance. Perform proper tire balance to true balance. Move tire position to cross tires going on front and move front tires straight back to rear. (Directional Tires cannot be cross rotated and must stay on the same side of the vehicle and can only be rotated front to rear.) Re-install tire on vehicle and road test for proper vehicle road handling. Note: If tires have not been rotated at proper intervals, the tires that were originally on the rear of the vehicle can have a chopped wear pattern on the tread and when re-positioned on the front of the vehicle may cause some vibration and noise. Balancing will not get rid of this noise. Some tires may quiet down after a few thousand miles. Others will continue to make noise until replaced. Note: Tires need to be related periodically to even out the wear to maximise the life of a tire. Front tires wear on the edges due to the steering. Rear tires wear more flat but will cup due to the light rear ends. Tire rotation is designed to keep the cupping and edge wear to a minimum. Wheel alignments should be performed every 15K miles.
